Year 9 Options Booklet

The selection of courses at Key Stage 4 is one of the key moments in your secondary education. All Ellis Guilford pupils follow a two-year Key Stage 4 programme, starting in Year 10. This provides the best opportunity for you to achieve your full potential and secure success by the end of Year 11.

Selecting the right course is not always a straightforward decision. However, we aim to ensure that the information and guidance provided will alleviate some of these issues. It’s important that you understand your own strengths and weaknesses so that you can optimise your chances of success. Equally, we trust that you will select courses in which you have a real interest.

Please read the information in this brochure, together with your Year 9 progress check data and conversations with teachers before making your choices.
